Biology has always been a fascination and more of a miracle to me from my childhood. It is the science of life because it concerns about the microscopic structures of the living organism and how they interact with each other to give raise its properties. At the school level, I exposed to major concepts of biology such as cell, genes, deoxyribonucleic acid, and protein. I used to read about their important roles in an organism and I never understood how these smallest components affect the most significant components in our body. Moreover, I questioned myself as well how these molecules could control our health & illness and how they could help us in curing numerous diseases. In addition to that, being in the biology lab preparing the tools and the substances for an experiment was the most enjoyable activities during my high school. All these thoughts and feelings lead me to decide that I should pursue my education in clinical laboratory science.
I successfully got admission into King Saud University where I graduated from the college of applied medical science, clinical laboratory science with first class honor; overall grade 4.98 out of 5. In college, I have been exposed to many fields of study that expounded to me the myths and mysteries of life such as biochemistry, microbiology, environmental microbiology, genetics, immunology, and enzymology. However, these courses introduced me to new questions that made me more curious about the inner life of cells. My insatiable thirst for delving deep into these subjects has inspired me to pursue a graduate career in cell and molecular biology because it will give me the opportunity to study the basic processes that run life’s playbook.
My graduation project was a literature review about “The Correlation between Human Papillomaviruses Infection and Infertility in Male”; manly discusses the significant role of human papillomaviruses in male fertility since it alters the sperms parameters. During this project; I learned the international standards of writing a literature review and referencing. In addition to that, I learned how to work on Endnote program and discussing my thesis in front of my Professors. As a result of perfect academic record, I won the dean’s list award which I considered it as a sign that means I am on the right path. After my graduation, I started my Internship at King Khalid University Hospital where I spent one year in routine and special laboratories. This program gave me a great opportunity to develop my technical and mechanical skills. Simultaneously, I volunteer with CLS club to give sessions through their snapchat account. Subsequently, I participated with a team to write a booklet about medical laboratory tests which is known as “Way to Medical Lab Test World”. This booklet will be published in cooperation with Saudi Ministry of Health.
Apart from my curriculum, I have good leadership skill and good teamwork abilities. I also have the enthusiasm to learn about life and its ambiguities. Life taught me to be a hardworking person to reach my goals and achieve my dreams.
After receiving my Bachelor’s degree, I know I want to be in a research center to help humanity in solving many lethal issues, especially the genetic problems. I also want to publish lots of landmark research in different scientific journals. Also, I would like to work in the academic field after completing my degree because the joy of teaching other is indescribable. My long-term goals are to work for Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
My search for the best match of objective, passions, and dreams has ended at King Abdullah University for Science and Technology (KAUST) with the best of fundamental research in all avenues of bioscience. When I visited the university website, I was fascinated with the research works that are carried out by KAUST which match my interest in the same line. Moreover, having a prestigious university like KAUST in the Middle East that allows us to conduct researches that suitable to our area made more excited to apply. KAUST gives me hope and makes me more confident in realizing my goal which trains myself thoroughly through the M.S program and proceeds further to a Ph.D. in cell and molecular biology. I am sure that the M.S/ Ph.D. in KAUST will definitely widen the horizons of my knowledge and help me obtain a milestone in my career.
In conclusion, I request you to consider my application favorably and provide me an opportunity to pursue my higher studies at your esteemed university.
